The Linux-powered gaming handheld known as Pandora is now available for pre-order, ever since the first 1,000 pre-orders have already been shipped ever since they became available back in May. Why Linux? Well, it was done so in order to take advantage of existing open source software, and the fact that Linux is a primary target for home-brew development is not lost on the Pandora as it is a miniature computer device which off Linux. Features include a 4.3-inch display, Web browsing capability, a handful of desktop software including OpenOffice just in case you feel the sudden urge to get all productive, a D-pad, relevant buttons and analog joysticks, a full QWERTY keyboard, Wi-Fi 802.11b/g and Bluetooth connectivity. It currently retails for $350 and is widely tipped to make the 3,000 figure mark when it ships in time for this holiday season.
